“I pursue and observe the complexity of different values and cultural identities in search of threads to weave a fabric which is a blending of these differences.” – Serge Mouangue
This Cameroon-born designer studied interior and industrial design in Europe, China, Australia, Turkey, Mexico and the United States. It was in France that he began taking courses in Japanese language and culture. Serge then moved to Japan and found parallels between the deep-rooted traditions of his homeland and that of Japanese culture.
WAFRICA style brings two completely different worlds together, celebrating ancient customs and modern sensibilities. Serge’s designs are beautiful and harmonious. A testament to globalization and how we can weave together different identities.
I find Serge’s work refreshing. He offers a new perspective for design and shows how even with our differences a connection can be discovered.
